I’ve felt compelled to share these tips because I’m sick of feeling helpless about the way our planet is being treated. Sometimes it feels like all you hear is bad news, but that’s not very helpful. My goal is to give us a few simple, actionable tips so that we can actually do something helpful for the planet. Let’s fight back!

Honestly I’ve been really nervous to publish this post for a couple of reasons.
